1. So 4300 kJ heat us released upon the formation of 2*80 or 160 g SO3. Use a proportion or this.
4300 kJ x (43.0/160) = ?

The proportion would look like this
(4300/160) = (x/43.0) and solve for x.

What would be more acidic? SO2 or SO3? Does this have to do something with the higher oxidation state? And why is that? Or can we say SO3 is more acidic by, SO2+H2O--->H2SO3 SO3+H2O--->H2SO4 as H2SO4 is more acidic?
